Leave it to us, we will make it happen!
In an initial meeting, we determine space needs and goals and establish a preliminary schedule and budget.
Next, we visit the site to inventory existing furnishings and items and measure the interior spaces.
Color palettes and samples of fabrics, furniture, wall coverings, floor coverings, window treatments and lighting are presented to you to help you visualize each design concept. A floor plan and rendering will be drawn up to help with space planning and concept. This is when your original design goals begin to evolve. We work together to form and refine a design scheme and start working to make the ideas materialize.
purchase your new pieces,trade discounts are passed onto you!
oversee any renovations, painting,or other projects that need to be done.
assemble all furniture pieces
place all furnishings, hang art and drapes, etc.
Here are a few tips to help you begin the design process:
Define you goals: Think about what you want, what you need and what you can afford.
Prioritize: What is most important to your project and ultimately, what are you trying to accomplish?
Research: If you have trouble conceptualizing your project, don't be afraid to look at a few design magazines for ideas. Clip out images of the rooms and furnishings that appeal to you, even if they don't seem to fit.
“Stacey has helped us with several projects at our house in Park Slope, Brooklyn, and it has been a pleasure to work with her on each and every one. The first was a redesign of a top floor room that was dark, depressing, and poorly laid out. Stacey came up with a creative plan that transformed the space from the worst room in the house to a bright and beautiful aerie for our daughter, with great storage space and a really nice vibe. She also did a wonderful job helping us turn a bedroom an attractive and highly functional home office/music room via a clever redesign—including built in shelving—as well as helping us plan a new living room layout that has greatly increased our enjoyment of the space as a family. In all of our collaborations, we have appreciated her wonderful spatial sense and clever design ideas, along with her willingness to really listen to and design for our needs, rather than impose her own personal “vision” on our space. She is both fun and easy to work with, and I have recommended her to other friends, who are equally thrilled with her results.” Sarah Edwards-Schmidt Brookln.NY
